Kenko 1.4x / 2x Pro 300 support for Z series

Is the Kenko Pro 1.4x / 2x compatible with Nikon Z6 with FTZ and 200-500 f5.6E?

If so, will it auto-focus or does it support only manual focus?

I've used a Kenko 1.4x 300 DG with my Z6 and Nikon 200-500mm and it works...center performance is great, but corners suffer. AF is good enough to track a mountain moving :)....i.e., it takes a further hit from a not-so-fast lens.

So AF works - but hunts similar to how it is functions with DSLRs.

It looks like both the photos are 700mm (500 * 1.4x). Were you trying to send two different photos?

Yes, the first should link to: http://www.bobr.si/files/500mm.jpg

I just tried my kenko pro 300 teleplus 1.4 with a nikon afp 70-300 fz and z6 and ftz - got err message.

Funny it worked fine with a sigma 100-400 on the ftz.

I can't check any further: away on hols and took z6, 14-30 f4, 50/1.8 s and the 70-300 - brilliant light travel system. Just before leaving I grabbed the tele convertor and tried it just now - no biggy - i am fine with the rest of the kit.

thought i'd mention it here - could be just the tele itself gone bad.  will check it out on d500 when I get back
